Older Americans Month

Month of May

Older adults are a vital part of our society. Since 1963, communities across the country have shown their gratitude by celebrating Older Americans Month each May. The theme of this year's celebration is "Get into the Act," to focus on how older adults are taking charge of their health, getting engaged in their communities, and making a positive impact in the lives of others.

"Get into the Act"

By promoting and engaging in activity, wellness, and inclusivity, more Americans than ever before can "Get into the Act." While Nevada County provides services to older adults year-round, Older Americans Month offers an opportunity to emphasize how older adults can access the home - and community-based services they need to live independently in their communities. It is also an occasion to recognize how older adults are engaging with and making a difference in those communities. Contact us if you have any questions at 530-265-1639.
